The Burghers of Calais

The Burghers of Calais
The Burghers of Calais by Auguste Rodin, in Victoria Tower Gardens, London.

Under French law no more than twelve casts of this piece were permitted after Rodin’s death. The London casting, purchased by the British Government in 1911, is one of those.

Rodin often duplicated parts of his statues. For example two of the heads on this grouping are identical and a third only slightly altered. Some of the hands are used twice.
